MOBIKE – The World’s First Smart Bike Share Company
Mobike, the world’s first and largest smart bike-sharing company, today announced it is launching its dockless bike-sharing service in Shah Alam to provide convenient, affordable and sustainable mobility solution to the city’s residents.
Malaysia is the third country in the Southeast Asian region to welcome Mobike’s operations, after the company announced the start of services in Thailand and Singapore. The launch today continues Mobike’s drive to enable better transport and connectivity throughout the region by providing a smarter and convenient mode of transport for urban residents.
The launch of its operations in Malaysia is well-aligned with the country’s 20-year National Land Public Transport Master Plan to provide a safe, reliable, affordable, and sustainable land public transport system. By working closely with S P Setia Berhad, Mobike ensures its bike-share service supports local residents and businesses by providing users the convenience of riding Mobike as part of their first and last mile of their journeys.
Mobike Vice President of International Expansion Chris Martin said, “We are truly excited to be partnering with S P Setia Berhad, a highly-regarded Malaysian property developer, to bring our customised smart bike-share service to Malaysia, a country which is embarking on an exciting and ambitious path to achieve an efficient, integrated, and sustainable public transport system. We envision that Mobike’s dockless and convenient bike-sharing service will grow in tandem with the nation’s push to redefine the transportation sector’s environmental impact for a sustainable and well-connected country.”
Mobikes are designed with proprietary high-tech features that benefit both users and partner cities. Every Mobike is equipped with unique smart-lock technology and built-in GPS connected via the Mobike IoT network.
To use the service, riders are being offered the opportunity to register with a one-time fully-refundable deposit at the promotional rate of RM9. At the end of this promotional period, the deposit will return to RM99. In conjunction with the launch in Malaysia, Mobike is providing one free month of services in September. Following the promotional period, Mobike users can enjoy rides at the affordable rate of RM1.50 for every 30 minutes.
